ATP Certification Training Program
The first step toward the Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) certificate is the Airline Transport Pilot Certification Training Program (ATP CTP). This program meets the requirements of FAR §61.156. It bridges the knowledge gap between a pilot who holds a commercial pilot certificate and a pilot operating in an air carrier environment. Successful completion of the ATP CTP makes you eligible to take the new ATP Multi-Engine (ATM) knowledge test, which you may take at any testing center. The ATP CTP is VA-approved for funding with veterans’ benefits.

The ATP-CTP is a prerequisite for the FAA’s highest certificate. This training program will impart conceptual knowledge through academics and consolidate that knowledge through training in Flight Simulation Training Device (FSTD.)
Designed for pilots who are looking to take the next step toward obtaining the ATP certificate with an airplane category multi-engine class rating or for adding an ATP certificate concurrently with an airplane type rating.
ATP Certification Process:
Effective August 1, 2014, new eligibility requirements and a new knowledge test for the Airline Transport Pilot Certificate took effect. ATP certification now requires an academic ground school and FAA knowledge test before the ATP practical test.
